Carrie Fisher Wants To Get Leia Right For Episode VII
Jay Cochran - May 29, 2014

According to the BBC, actress Carrie Fisher recently spoke at the Hay Festival in Wales where she said that she wanted to "get Leia right" for the upcoming Episode VII movie which brings her Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill back to a Galaxy Far Far Away...

The 57 year old actress who was only 19 when she was originally cast for the role said she, "I think less British. I looked a little pretentious faking the accent.". She went on to joke and say that she and her fellow actors , "all look a little melted". "It is good to have us all in a room because it's unique. I mean, I don't suppose they have reunions for the Gone With The Wind gang," she continued.

"I think people should be forced to do it 30 years on, classic films that they had, either to make another film or put together an anecdote."

She also mentioned that she would be revisting her classic Princess Leia hairstyle with the two buns on the side of her head.

The film which is being directed by J.J Abrams will star John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow along with the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. Production on the film has begun and it is slated to open in theaters from Disney on December 18, 2015.

[quote name='yojoebro82' timestamp='1429404976' post='16820325'] They said they would make greater use of practical effects in this movie. I'm looking forward to seeing that because it will harken back to the original films. No one ever said there would be no CGI and i... read more

I'm sick of that @##@@ ball droid already. He's become the big distraction for lack of practical effects. 1:08 in the new trailer...I really doubt that is the "practical prop" rolling behind them. Also: mark 1:25...modern camera movement cliche I absolutely hate with SFX shots.... read more

Thought it was pretty damn good. Can't wait and loved the scene with Han and Chewie.. but it seemed like they just got back from the market with Banta steaks and some Blue milk and Leia was gonna ream them one for forgetting the Corellian Ale.

Is it me or did Chewy look a bit different?
